I hope y'all aren't getting tired of my magnetic bookmarks yet, because they're baaaaaaack.
Sorry. I love Arnold.
I made these early so you'd have plenty of time to put some together for your sweeties for Valentine's Day.
Here's the first design, front and back.
This one is my favorite. It must be the teacher in me.
These have a lot of heart. I mean hearts.
I can't get enough of pandas lately. I made these from a digital kit called Pandemonium from Designer Digitals. I bought it a couple years ago here. I also want to try the treat toppers and the matchbook candy favors this year. If I have time.
I'm not so wild about the way these turned out. They look fine until you print them. I printed one at home, had one printed at Wal Mart, and then got some more printed at Walgreen's, and they came out different each time. Instead of a lovely brown background, it's more of a pukey green color. Just consider yourself warned if you want to give them a try.
Also, I wanted to share my new discovery with you.
I can turn one of these magnetic business cards into six magnetic bookmarks now. I've doubled the number of bookmarks I can get out of one business card magnet! I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner.
I'll understand if you aren't as excited as I am.
It's just that me and office supplies, we go waaaaaay back.
Here's how to get six bookmarks. First cut the business card magnet in half.
Then each third in half.
See. This is all you need for each bookmark . . . one little piece right in the middle.
Then I stick the other one on top, peel off the sticky backing, and finally close the bookmark. Now I have perfectly lined up magnets.
By the way, please don't use your paper cutter to cut the magnets. My magnets are just sitting on the paper cutter for the pictures. I used scissors to cut them. If you were to use your paper cutter, it would be very bad for the blade. Very bad.
Here are the bookmarks if you want to make some. First click on each image to get the best resolution, then save it to your desktop. Don't forget that step or they'll look crappy.
Next, upload them to your favorite photo center, and order them as 4x6 prints. Then when you get them home, cut them in half so that you have two 2" x 6" bookmarks. You will fold each bookmark in half so that the finished size is 2" x 3".
By the way, it was suggested that I needed to make some boyish bookmarks, so you can find those here.
